: another pending addition to the obama administration is senator chuck hagel, who was been nominated to be the secretary of defense. if he becomes the secretary of defense, what is his involvement in the sequestration process going to be? guest: he will be in general in making these cuts happen. he is a veteran and a former member of the senate armed services committee. he knows the military. one of the reasons he was brought into this is because he knows how to cut. he knows what works and what does not. at least that is what the administration thinks. he will be an effective person, and leaves the white house hopes, in making these cuts take place. host: we are talking with ray locker, the national security editor at the newspaper, usa today. our next call comes from st. louis on our line for republicans. go ahead, greg. caller: even though the sequestered takes place, instead of spending 40 cents of every dollar, we would only be spending 38 cents out of every dollar. i did not know if it makes a difference. i think we need sequestration. thanks. guest: one of the things that many
, without due process. but now, the obama administration is using that same authorizeation, that same justification to -- the same authorization, rather, to justify the use of drones. the aclu among others, has raised questions about this. chamcy is the spokesperson for the aclu. >> essentially claimed that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner in cle declaring american citizens and targeting them for killing far from any battlefield >> bill: so that is the problem. i mean, it seems to me that we are really saying yeah, the president can be -- well put, judge, jury and executioner. due process? there is no more. due process is out the window. there is no need to prove in a court of law, no judge is involved here at all. no jury is involved here at all. that person is guilty. this high-level informed high-level official of the united states decides that that person is guilty and we just send a drone in to whack 'em. i don't know about you. this is scary stuff. this will raises a lot of serious questions. i think we have got to be as
us their serious concerns about the obama administration's policy on the use of drones to kill americans overseas. and here's where we start today the post office says no delivery on saturday. but first... >> this is the "full court press." >> a lot of stuff you need to know as you head out the door on this thursday. a new low for fox news. fewer people than ever before say they trust that network. politico reporting on a new public policy polling survey that finds that just 41% of americans trust fox news while 46% do not trust the network. three years ago 49% trusted it. 37% did not. the poll found that more people trusted pbs than any other network with 52%. >> bill: 46% don't trust fox. >> let me just say as someone who monitors the media and respects what journalists do -- [ laughter ] that is great news! >> bill: the public is finally waking up to the fact that fox news is not fair and balanced! >> senator mitch mcconnell is a happy kentucky basketball fan. the hill reporting the senate minority leader was visited yesterday by university of kentucky basketball coach john
the president. the mainstream media is giving the obama administration a pass and that needs to stop. martha: we'll hear from the cia, the man who is expected to be the head of the cia, downbrennan, there is so much focus on the drone issue. i want to get your thoughts on that. i know you are supportive of that program overall. do you think that because of the drone issue that john brennan will get a pass on what he knew because we haven't heard from him on that. >> isn't that a good question in the counter terrorism director of the united states has not said one word about the actions he took when he was notified. there is a joint task force by law that is supposed to meet when there is a terrorist attack. they weren't even called into session. i'll ask panetta why that is so. no one has asked john brennan anything about benghazi. he's in the chain of command to do something about it. it's dumbfounding the lack of scrutiny this administration has had regarding benghazi. martha: we know hillary clinton was basically up all night trying to get help in the area from the libyan government. we don't
are the target. what the obama administration wants to do about it. cheryl: super blackout. who is responsible in what it will cost. dennis: this super bowl got the best ratings ever, into one the ad bowl? the best and the very worst. nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange up 149 on the dow. down now. nicole: a selloff day. you get some, you give some back. we are pulling back, down about 130 points right now. we're not looking at dow 14,000 like we were on friday. a monumental day for all of those after five years from 2007 when i have been waiting and finally got it. today a different story, there are concerns once again about europe and as a result the dollar gaining strength, and that weighs on the market. take a look at blackberry, a name in the headlines, selling off dramatically and now we have endless coming out and talking positively putting it in saying obviously they are believing in the company, the price targets $22 up from $12, and the stock is really jumping today. cheryl: a little late to the party. but we will take it, at least the shareholders will. we will see you
the obama administration, an international field some change is coming to haiti. . jobs have been created, schools have been built, yet, gender-based violence remains severe. today i'm introducing a resolution calling attention to the plight of haitian women and children and calling for action on their behalf. with the strategy to prevent gender-based violence, the obama administration is on the right track. congress and the administration must ensure robust funding for these initiatives, including the u.s. agency of international development, gender equality and female empowerment policy to meet the continuing need. for me, this issue is personal. i've seen the tent cities firsthand. i have spoken with the women. i have counseled the victims and witnessed the scars of indignation and pain. i feel the anguish in my bones. but i also feel the hope. let's work together to ensure that no woman in haiti, no woman in this hemisphere or in this world has to bear the indignity of sexual violence. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoma
that that is the threat, but nothing from the -- but nothing from the administration indicates that. >> obama care was not a tax until they needed to be a tax. >> that was the supreme court. host: weighing in on the conversation, the financial crisis, did it delay your retirement? on twitter you can participate as well. host: let's hear from sandra in virginia. hello. caller: i am the wife of a retired pastor. he is not retired, we cannot retire. because when the crash happened, we received notice from our retirement fund that in order for them to serve everyone, they were going to cut everyone, so we got a cut from 2100 per month to 1600 per month. my husband has to continue working, even though he is well past the age for retirement. they are talking about moving it up. while pasturing is not a hard job, physically, it is still a matter of going to work everyday and it is definitely an emotionally draining jobs. even though he is called a part- time minister, there is no such thing as a part-time anything in pastoral ministry. when people call on you, you come, and that is just the way that it i
brennan's first public testimony as an obama administration official. expect to see fireworks at this confirmation hearing. the real question may be how this 25-year cia veteran handles the public spotlight. in a crisis, it's often john brennan giving president obama's 3:00 a.m. wake-up call. >> i'm not sure he's slept in four years. >> there may be even less sleep in brennan is confirmed as the next ci achlt director. >> i will make sure that the cia has tools it needs. >> tools like drones. brennan has helped establish in saudi arabia and the eastern peninsula democrats are demanding answers involved with the ool kwad da. it's one controversy he faces at the confirmation hearing. there's his role i the leaks like the cyberattack on iran's nuclear program and his knowledge of harsh interrogations when he was at the cia during the george w. bush years. >> the american public sen titled to know the details of what it was that -- what was his role in the bush administration with the torture program. >> outrage over the interrogation program scuttled brennan's chances to lead the
. martha: what do you think it tells us about the obama administration's policy towards the war on terror? >> i think a couple of things. they don't want to get their fingers dirty. they don't want american casualties. known wants that. the problem i think is three in the whole drone war idea, number one we may have been very good at the very beginning when we were taking out key people in very difficult to reach parts of pakistan and afghanistan but we've now expanded that drone war and are the third thing martha that worries me probably more than anything we are lowering the threshold of when we use force. it's an important thing to have americans in the loop. by doing something where no americans are at risk. martha: it negates your ability to get intelligence from any of these individuals. >> yeah, they are dead. martha: we know the president is not fond of the gitmo model. it raises a lot of questions about the most useful way to apprehend people and get information from them. as far as we know, right we are talking about anwar al-awlaki, and american-born citizen who we know was an
that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes have gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be and lamenting a bipartisan agreement. host: so, what is the li
. and also during my time, obviously, in the obama administration i greatly benefited from many of the georgetown graduates. i had the honor to have someone as my chief of staff, jeremy bash, who graduated here from georgetown, serve as my chief of staff at the c.i.a. and then followed me to the pentagon as my chief of staff. and also someone who's had a public affairs at the pentagon, george little, who is also someone who both graduated and later taught here at georgetown. talented young individuals who have been at my side every day for the last four years at both the c.i.a. and the pentagon, and i am deeply grateful for their work for me and on behalf of the nation and i am deeply grateful for georgetown for training such extraordinary public servants. and speaking of extraordinary public servants, i think many in this audience know that there's a georgetown professor that the president has nominated to serve as the next secretary of defense, chuck hagel, and i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will h
and controversial policies of the obama administration. good morning, i'm jon scott. jenna: hi, everybody. glad you're with us today. i'm jenna lee. these reports are surfacing of a confidential justice department memo that authorizes the killing of american citizens overseas in drone strikes. now there's a caveat. the killing is allowed if they're leaders of al qaeda or a associated terror group. this alone considered an imminent threat, even if there is it no clear evidence that a specific attack on the united states will take place in the immediate future. and the whole controversial issue sure to come up when the president's pick to head the cia john brennan, testifies at his confirmation hearings later this week. timing matters. chief intelligence correspondent herridge shirge is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: this is clash between executive powers and congressional oversight. at center of this is the assertion by the obama white house it has the right to target american citizens for death without judicial review. and while saying they respect presidential authority in this
it a lot. and also during my time, obviously in the obama administration, i greatly benefited from many of the georgetown graduates. i had the honor to have someone as my chief of staff, jeremy bash, who graduated from georgetown, served as my chief of staff at the cia and followed me to the pentagon as my chief of staff. and also someone who is head of public affairs at the pentagon, george little, who is also someone who both graduated and later taught here at georgetown. talented, young individuals who have been at my side every day for the last four years at both the cia and the pentagon. and i'm deeply grateful for fore work on behalf of me and on behalf of the nation. and i'm deeply grateful to georgetown for training such extraordinary public servants. and speaking of extraordinary public servants, i think many in this audience know that there's a georgetown professor that the president has nominated to serve as the next secretary of defense, chuck hagel. i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will have the k
that the obama administration is following is consistent with and really derived from the bush administration approach to the war on terror. and i think it is entirely sensible. whether it is foreign citizens who are involved with al qaeda or american citizens, we are in a war. they have attacked us. we have a congressional authorization to use military force in response. and that's what's at stake here. this is not, you know, robbing the 7-eleven down on the corner. these people are engaged in war against the united states. whether they're american citizens or not, we have entitled as a basic matter of our inherent right of self-defense to respond accordingly. jenna: let's talk a little bit about policy not just now but decades into the future which we have to consider as well. as a matter of policy and how this is being applied right now, do you have any concerns about how it could be used under a different administration at a different time? >> well, i think it could be used less effectively by a future american administration. look, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, uavs, is a huge ste
sent those weapons and why. alisyn: the nation's roman catholic bishops rejecting the obama administration's new version of the health care law contraception mandate. the bishops said it does not offer enough safeguards for religious hospitals, colleges and charities that objected to providing such coverage to employees. they're asking for exemption for owners of for-profit businesses because it forces them to violate their religious beliefs. the bishops will continue fighting the federal mandate in court. rick: a hacker getting access to the personal e nails of the -- e-mails of bush family and posting confidential information online. now a criminal investigation is underway. the secret service is involved. molly henneberg is live in d.c.. what kind of information was put up on the web? >> reporter: hi, rick. private family photos, personal e-mails, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, home addresses all said to be obtained from hacked e-mails going back to 2009 according to the smoking gun website. the smoking gun said it got material from the hacker. pictures include this
